About Me

NOTE: If you receive something from me that has postage due, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE let me know and I will make sure you are repaid. Since we are staying home because of Corona Virus, I'm not going to the post office. I'm using a mail/food scale to weigh my outgoing mail and then use the USPS 'calculate postage' to figure out the correct postage. If I'm off, please let me know and I will make it up to you!

Now About Me: I've been married for 43 years and have 2 married daughters, 1 granddaughter (12) and 3 grandsons (one 16 & two 6 year old twins). I am recently retired, enjoy spending more time with family and watching the grandkids grow!

I transplanted from Montana to the Pacific Northwest 35+ years ago and have never regretted it. Can't beat being a couple of hours away from the mountains, the beach or the 'big city' although I do miss the slower living of Montana.

I'm a Seattle Sounders fan and enjoy going to their matches. Go Sounders!

Favorite Crafts

I love making cards, and other paper crafts, cross stitching and sewing. I enjoy learning from other crafters and seeing their creations.

Over the past years I've been 'collecting' paper crafting supplies and fabric to use when I retired. I'm not at hoarder status yet, but could be close! It's been fun trying to use some supplies that I've had stashed away but never tried before. I would like new ideas to spark my creativity and to see what's new in the crafting world.

In the past I was a SU! demonstrator which built up my stamping collection. I also was a part of Operation Write Home until they dissolved. I enjoyed making cards for the troops and miss having that purpose and connection.

I like to collect recipes and occasionally try them out. I've made several family cookbooks for family reunions.

Favorite Television

I watch lots of movies and tv but I'm usually working on cards or another project while I'm watching (or else I fall asleep!) I'm always looking for a new series to watch. Any suggestions? A few of my favorites are:

~ Outlander

~ Grey's Anatomy

~ The Man in the High Castle

~ Marvelous Mrs. Maizel

~ Better Call Saul

~ This is Us

~ The Masked Singer

~ Survior

~ Downton Abbey

~ Call the Midwife

~ Modern Family

~ and the list goes on, and on, and on!

About Me

I enjoy learning about different cultures and countries, and connecting with others. I wish to someday do more traveling.

My favorite colors are purples, blues and greens, but would enjoy any color.

Other favorites are dragonflies, hearts and angels.

I'm allergic to cinnamon, cloves, ginger, basically all of the fall flavors. Unfortunately, no pumpkin spice lattes, spiced teas or spice scented candles for me!

Favorite crafting tools

My crafting likes but I'm open to anything new in the crafting world:

~ Paper! Paper! Paper!

~ Washi

~ Quotes, sayings, angel words

~ Ribbons

~ Wink of Stella Glitter Brushes

~ Rub ons

~ Stamps

~ Rhinestones, gems for paper crafting

~ Raised elements

Postcards

I prefer naked PCs, love that stamped piece of mail. Although I like to collect state PCs, I also like to get a PC that you like so I can learn more about you.

Postage and no shows

If you do not receive something from me, please contact me and I will resend. I understand that all post offices are different, have different hours, some even different days that they work, especially the smaller rural towns. And they misplace things. If you receive something from me with postage due, please let me know and I will more than make it up to you. I can't always get to the post office so use a scale and USPS.com to figure out postage rates and may sometimes not get it right.

I've always believed that health and family are the most important pieces of our lives. So if you are going to be late, please send me a message so I know when to be looking for your item.

I would appreciate if you would give me a chance to make it right and I will do the same for you.

Happy swapping!

SURPRISE!!!

I love making cards, sending cards and RAK. Maybe you'll find a surprise in your mailbox one day!

Comment: Thank you for the card. It kind of reminds me of an area on one of the local lakes where we used to go fishing and camping when my husband was alive. I haven't been up there since the flooding last year so I don't know what it looks like now.

I saw where you had left a 1 for a swap partner and you were so kind in your comment, hoping she was ok. I thought "There's a compassionate and kind person" and just wanted you to know.

Heeeey I just got your card! I love it and will definitely use it! So well made! Iโ€™m send mine out this week!

i had never been to a crew (rowing) regatta until my oldest kid joined the crew team, freshman year in high school. And as far as WA is concerned, I have a good friend with two rowers - it's a big deal in the Seattle area. Not sure about sailing regattas though.
